Toronto Maple Leafs

 
Battle of Ontario

  The rivalry between the Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs is an interesting one. Considered by some to be the most intense in the NHL. On ice, the rivalry has been lackluster for years, though it’s a little different amongst fans. Ask a Leaf fan what team they hate more than anyone, and most [...]

 

Hello there my beautiful Crash The Net groupies! I have decided to extend my Movember posts into the month of December or as my friend Tyler likes to call it “Decembeard”.

Quiet in NHL town <3

  Four days later and I still get teary thinking about the tragic events of Friday. Never in my life did I think I would cry over someone I’ve never met or had “real contact” with. This time was different for me. I even find myself choking up as I write this post. Jessica Redfield [...]
